Todd County Septic Inventory III
Accelerated Implementation Grant 2014
Septic Inventory around 4 Lakes
LOCAL LEVERAGED FUNDS
This project represents the third septic inventory effort by Todd County. The four lakes included - Guernsey, Juergans, Little Sauk, and Long Lakes - are all designated by the Sauk River Water District's Sauk Lake Management Unit as high priority for water quality improvement. Three of these lakes are listed as water quality-impaired for nutrients and the fourth - Long Lake - has had periodic e.Coli problems documented in several tributaries. This project will allow Todd County to expand on previous evaluations of 13 other lakes. Field inspections will document compliance with current septic ordinances and incorporate that data into the county's land use permit system.
